chanson: The Beatles – In My Life

“in my life” is one of the best uses of the present perfect: it’s used to talk about experiences:

In my life, I’ve lived in three different countries
In my life, I’ve seen thousands of films
In my life, I’ve had several different jobs
In my life, I’ve written a book
In my life, I’ve worked as a musician

My life isn’t finished, so I use the present perfect, which is a present tense, not a past tense. It relates all the things that have happened(present perfect) up to this present time.

Here are the song lyrics to ‘in my life’:

There are places I remember
All my life though some have changed
Some forever not for better
Some have gone and some remain
All these places had their moments
With lovers and friends I still can recall
Some are dead and some are living
In my life I’ve loved them all

But of all these friends and lovers
There is no one compares with you
And these memories lose their meaning
When I think of love as something new
Though I know I’ll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I’ll often stop and think about them
In my life I love you more

Though I know I’ll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I’ll often stop and think about them
In my life I love you more
In my life I love you more
